The Singapore-based Filipino teenager, who recently went viral for her Charles & Keith "luxury" bag, just got more goodies from the fashion house.

In a TikTok video posted Jan. 15, Zoe Gabriel showed followers some boxes of items that included personalized bags.

"To everyone who has shown their support and endless kindness, this is for you," Gabriel wrote in the caption. She thanked netizens who rallied behind her during the viral moment.

Charles & Keith also sent her a note of gratitude, saying that the company is "so impressed" with the grace in how Gabriel handled the situation, displaying values that, the brand said, resonate with it greatly.

"We hope that it will remind you of this special moment where you inspired so many others to be kind, compassionate, and confident," the note read.

In another video, Gabriel greeted followers "Mabuhay from Bacolod," dubbed the City of Smiles.

"We're so excited to be here and can't wait to see you guys in Manila next week," she said.

Gabriel made the rounds online last Jan. 8 when she posted that she received a Charles & Keith bag from her father, dubbing it a luxury bag. Some users, however, took a swipe at her for such labeling.

Many users came to her defense, as her post sparked conversations about wealth and privilege.
